Adequacy of biopsy specimens was higher in non transplanted kidnies. The trend to using new methods of renal biopsy has been increased among specialists during the study. The Adequacy of biopsy specimens in blind method, CT scan-guided biopsy, and real time ultrasounography was 75.2%, 66.4%, and 77.6% respectively (P > 0.05).Conclusion: According to the findings of current study, the advantages of new biopsy methods than traditional blind method have not been demonstrated but the growing experience in this area was considerable.
